An Affair of Love

So the "Ae"s were only one movie so now I'm onto the "Af"s!  And of course, per Netflix usual, they don't have the first one, which is Affair in Trinidad, so it takes us to

An Affair of Love- 1999, directed by Frederic Fonteyne, starring a couple of French people

He says- Provocative and interesting film about a woman who places an ad in a magazine to find  a man who will participate in her sexual fantasy.  Soon the couple is meeting on a weekly basis, but she is reluctant to take the next step and get to know him as a person.  French title isUne Liaison Porongraphique (A Pornographic Affair), which refers to Baye's definition of their relationship; the film itself is fairly discreet.  3 stars

I say-  I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would.  I was expecting it to be a boring foreign film, but it was quite the opposite.  Very depressing in places, and they never say what they're meeting for in secret, which adds to the mystery.  Great acting and good script, but a one-time movie.  2 and a half stars
